Teachers and Advisers' Conference


Our annual Teachers and Advisers' Conference takes place in Cambridge on Tuesday 16 July 2024.

The Conference is for those supporting students to apply to university and offers a great opportunity to visit the University, find out more about our courses and application process, and network with colleagues and University staff.

What will I get out of it?

Topics that will be covered at the 2024 Conference include subject sessions, a session covering subject choice and skills for transitioning into 6th form and into university, as well as teacher self-reflection on their own attitudes to competitive-for-entry HEIs and an interview example session.
